God don't make me go back to Jackson
The sky turns black every time I do
Heaven don't like the way I'm living
God don't make me go back to Jackson the sky turns black every time I do

Stray dog on the side of the highway
He's got nothing left to lose
Soon he's going home to Jesus
God don't make me go back to Jackson the sky turns black every time I do

Baptized in the muddy water
My soul broke in like a weathered shoe
Can't you hear that choir singing
God don't make me go back to Jackson the sky turns black every time I do

I hopped a train just south of Memphis
And I found myself in Baton Rouge
I got out with my soul still burning
God don't make me go back to Jackson the sky turns black every time I do

I've seen men with covered faces
And I've seen the last of the chosen few
Last night I dreamed they crucified me
God don't make me go back to Jackson the sky turns black every time I do

God don't make me go back to Jackson
The sky turns black every time I do
Heaven don't like the way I'm living
God don't make me go back to Jackson the sky turns black every time I do
